Department of Pediatric Urology

About us

The Clinic of Pediatric Urology is the only permanently established department of paediatric urology in Slovakia.

Pediatric Urology is the subspecialty of both Urology and Pediatric Surgery concerned with clinical recognition, prevention, treatment (surgical and non-surgical), and the rehabilitation of congenital and acquired diseases, malformations and functional problems of the genitourinary system in children and adolescents. It also encompasses the promotion of good genitourinary system health in children.

In 2015, we introduced laparoscopic minimally invasive treatment of obstructive uropathy and kidney cancer, which benefits our patients through a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and in particular a lower intensity of pain that accompanies every post-surgical condition.

 

Endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and posterior urethral valves is a standard and frequent procedure, carried out by all specialized urologists in this department. Clinic of Pediatric Urology fully utilizes the available urodynamics equipment, as urodynamic examination remains an integral part of the differential diagnosis of functional disorders of the lower urinary tract in children
